Film director Sergei Eisenstein was not deceived by Hitler’s ruse and saw the Nazi threat for what it was, a black faced lie, not to invade Russia. He brought out a film called Alexander Nevsky in 1938, telling of the 13th Century Russian hero, Prince Alexander and his campaign against the invading Teutonic Knights of Germany. The story, quite accurate at that, was a good parallel with the situation in 1938, and served as a slightly disguised warning to the Soviet people to be ready, when the Germans invaded Russia. Eisenstein was sure this was a certainty, despite Stalin’s insistance that the Führer could be trusted. So disillusioned was the Soviet leader when the German Army did attack, that he sequestered himself for 2-3 weeks in his Moscow area “dacha,” a sort of Communist “Camp David.” He refused to give defensive orders and hundreds of thousands of Soviets died in the initial days of this war. Stalin, at first, tried to suppress the Eisenstein film, but it was so popular that he relented…..
